Think theres an absence of Martin Luther King Day/Black History Month events in the Valley? Wrong you are, my friend. So far, theres been a reenactment of Dr. Kings march on Washington; a locally produced play chronicling the life of Bessie Coleman, Americas first African-American female pilot; a freestyle music workshop; and numerous lectures/workshops about contemporary African-American issues. Whew!
To top off these celebrations galore, ASUs S.T.A.R.S. Association will host a not-to-be-missed Soul Food Festival featuring good peeps and good eats on the picturesque grounds of Hayden Lawn.
